Highland Book Club: September Meeting

Wednesday, September 25 - 6:00 PM

Join us on Wednesday, September 25, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., for an evening of lively literary discussion at Highland, the home of President James Monroe. This event is FREE and open to the public.

During the September meeting of our book club, Highland guide Kate Spencer will lead the group in discussion of Elizabeth House Trist, by Gerald Gewalt.

Amazon.com writes “The story of a strong woman with few legal rights, no political rights and few economic opportunities who conquered the challenges of life in Jeffersonian America. Fortunately, Elizabeth left us written testimonies of her struggles including the earliest extant journal by a woman traveling from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh and then by flatboat own the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to Natchez and New Orleans.”

Guests can sign up for one, two, or all three of the fall Highland Book Club meetings. To RSVP for this FREE event, click on the link below or email museumshop@highland.org.
